Scrubbies | Plastic Free, Eco-friendly Sponges & Scourers | Vera-Bee

Scrubbies

Scrubbies are the reusable, washable, compostable and plastic free alternative to traditional scourers and sponges. They are 100% Vegan and 100% Awesome.

Kerry Mackay founded her micro-business Scrubbies wanting to change the world one reusable sponge at a time. She now makes 30,000 of the washable, biodegradable, home-compostable cleaning pads a year and exports all over Europe from her kitchen table. Hers is literally a cottage industry: working and making at home in Glyn Ceiriog near Wrexham.

Kerry said she didn't realise one person and a simple switch to a fully compostable product could make such a difference. "It has been really empowering starting my own business and helping to reduce the global plastic crisis," she said while machining another plastic-free sponge.

She also recently been named in Small Business Britain's top 100 inspiring female entrepreneurs.
